Description

Irthi x Architecture and Other Things Safeefah x Sand Casting Design Labs Collection For the “Safeefah x Sand Casting” Design Lab, Irthi collaborated with Architecture + Other Things designers Nada Taryam, Faisal Tabbarah, and Khawla Al Hashimi to produce a collection of sand casted furniture -a table and a set of stools. The designers and Irthi’s Bidwa trainees* experimented with different combinations of water, sand, concrete, clay, and soil, to create a substance that can set into a rock-like material. The final material was cast into special frames filled with sand. Bidwa Artisans* used their Safeefah* weaving skills to weave camel leather to create the stools’ seats, resulting in this exquisite and unique collection of furniture.
